We recently reached our first birthday milestone at Mixcloud and celebrated in style with some Happy Birthday Cloudcasts from across the Mixcloud community. We picked our top five and showcased them on our blog.

Each Cloudcaster will receive some lovely presents, Mixcloud Tees and free copies of the Mixed In Key software.

We decided to wrap up our first year by further celebrating the array of talented DJs discovered through various competitions we’ve run over the course of our first year.

The Stars of the Future 2010 page highlights the achievements these guys have made in winning their respective competitions, how they felt collecting their prizes and helping them reach the next level.

A special thanks to all our partners who helped us put these competitions together.
